campaign. and republican strategist john fehrig. good to have you here. >> good morning. >> just listening to the mayor talk there really draws the, i guess, pulls the veil back on exactly what is being discussed here when it comes to common sense approaches to just even background checks and the from the right. how the president and the administration is shifting gears for organization for action. take a look. >> the president has the most exciting campaign apparatus ever built. it's time to turn that loose. >> right. >> it's time to turn that loose for something more than just an election. right? if the nra's got a list, then obama for america has a bigger list. >> all right. so jen, you know firsthand exactly what it looks like to be a part of that campaign operation. give us the insider details of how this is really going to work when it's not a campaign-style approach for re-election, but a campaign-style approach to get america to support gun control legislation. >> well, thomas, i think everybody in the obama orbit, people in the building, but people who are supporters from the outs
with him, i've worked with john boehner, they are both good and decent guys. they can come together to provide the leadership to get things donivities our power panel, thanks to all three of you. i really appreciate your time. >>> coming up next, boehner ace biggest nightmare, deal with a few new anti-establishment lawmakers that could make things harder. one of the them is congressman yoho. >>> coming clean, lance armstrong telling oprah he is in fact guilty of doping. >>> our big question for you today, on the heels of that admission, does he deserve forgiveness and his ban lifted? what are your thoughts? tweet me or fund me on facebook. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

for this and john boehner has said that republicans will review these proposals. do you think it's just lip service from the right that we're getting, okay, that the american people are hearing that they're going to take a look at this, but they don't really mean it? >> certainly there are some in the gop who are giving us lip service and they just want the thing to die down and go away quietly and they figure the more they can stall, the better their chances. but there are some who aren't going to step forward, moderate gop member who is aren't going to co-sponsor an assault weapon ban or a bill to provide yuan versus wall background checks. that if they actually vote on it, they will hear from their constituents, quite frankly they would rather not have to vote on this so it would be fine if this got put off indefinitely. but if the president is successful and i think he's got a real chance here doing what he does best, going out to the american public, i think these modern gop members and waving democratic members can be kept in line and we can pass some of these very important measures. >> the
. and that is not the case here. the president and the family will walk over to the st. john's church and the church of the president as it is so often known for the first family before the inaugural swearing in and then the parade and then the ball, and ten of them four years ago, but just two, and still pretty good ones this time around. >> peter alexander from the white house, and of course, we will come to you back later in the show. right now, let's go to the south part of the mall there, luke russert. what is going on there? >> well, there is a concert that was four years ago and replayed for the folks who might not have been down here, and we are seeing the 6,000 national guard troops mobilize ed fd for the e and the 4,000 district of columbia police officers joined by 2,000 of their friends from around the country. there is a heavy security presence, but not as much as last time, craig. because we expect 500 to 700,000 people here and last time it with was 1.8 million and more sort of room to breathe, and that is what the organizers said, they want the people to walk around and see the mall
that bickering, the hyper partisanship. it was about 50 years ago this year that president john f. kennedy said let us not seek the republican answer, let us not seek the democratic answer, let's seek the right answer. i think that still rings true 50 years later. >> do you think that the president should circumvent you and congress on any type of gun control legislation and go with an executive order, or would you prefer to be able to go through it and come up with the right answer, as you point out? >> well, i was very honored to have been selected by congressman mike thompson from california to serve on the congressional gun violence task force, and we mean to hold hearings starting today on the very question and we'll be looking into it and hearing from witnesses on all of those fronts, on all of the above methods of addressing the gun violence problem in this country. my preference, of course, would be to go through what we can accomplish in congress before the president resorts to executive measures. >> democratic congressman matt cartwright of pennsylvania, thanks so much. we appreciate
the issue? >> reporter: craig, they are saying that they are encouraged by the fact that house speaker, john boehner, is putting forward a proposal that increases the debt limit without an equal amount of spending cuts. that was his long-held position a and he is abandoning that position, and saying that he will increase the debt ceiling for a period of three months and in that timeframe, the congress has to come up with a budget and that is a win from the democrats standpoint, but they do not like the idea of increasing the debt limit in increments. the question is, if it gets passed will it force both sides to come to the table on spending cuts within a matter of months when they take on the issue on of the budget and then of course, the sequester. that is the big question mark, you heard nancy pelosi saying she does not like the idea and i have spoke to republicans that do not like the idea of withholding their pay if they do not get a budget passed. peter king of new york said it's like bribery. so, while aides on the hill are saying they feel confident that this package package will mak
at the white house in a private ceremony in the blue room with families and chief justice john roberts. the day will begin with vice president biden getting sworn in by justice sotomayor. that's happening at a different time than president obama because we are told according to several officials that the chief justice at the justice department has done investigating on this, and some reporting on this, apparently biden wants justice sotomayor to swear him in. there is a schedule you willing conference and she has a book signing and they'll get that taken care of earlier in the day. the vice president and the president will head to a wreath laying ceremony at arlington national cemetery and then during the evening they will attend an inaugural reception. so it is a busy day as they prepare for the public swearing in which will take place on monday and we should say today is the national day of service. both vice presidented bien and president obama participating in that earlier today, craig. >> kristen welker participating from 1600 pennsylvania avenue. thanks, appreciate that. nbc's senior poli
into power after two years ago when they took back control in 2010. so it helped for john boehner to get his troops in line and to get the conservative groups onboard with the budget proposal and to get that messaging across, very simple line. no budget, no pay, right? it's tweetable. it's something that they can get republicans, tea party republicans all onboard behind that and be united in a way that you haven't seen so far over the last few years. >> it's also one of the messages that will resonate with folks in this country who hear we'll stop paying them? we dislike them anyway? we should cut their pay? >> with all of the talk with republicans being in control with most of the statehouses. it's a complete nod to state legislators who have done this. >> part of the mission was to think of ways to gain women and minority voters as well. how do you think republicans are going to get out of the colonial types, if you will, on this one? >> you're already seeing a lot of this immigration reform push with senator marco rubio taking the lead on that, but you're seeing paul ryan join up and the
